xpedx Launches Expansion of Vector Business Imaging Papers Line
Press release from the issuing company
LOVELAND, Ohio--Sept. 6, 2005-- xpedx today announced a major quality and value improvement to its popular cut-size Vector Multi-Purpose business imaging papers line. xpedx has increased the paper's brightness to 92, up from 84, which greatly improves print quality and readability.
xpedx also said that it expanded the Vector line to include new laser cut sheets, computer paper and copier tabs. These join the line's multipurpose, coated laser and DI coated offset papers. All papers are stocked at 250 xpedx merchant house locations and paper stores across the U.S.
"Demand for Vector has grown consistently since its launch earlier this year," said Dave Wessling, xpedx Director of Marketing for Business Imaging, Western and Midwest regions. "Today, we are raising the bar on quality, availability and breadth of this value-priced printing and business imaging papers line."
The new Vector Laser Cut Sheets are used by printers and businesses to create custom collateral--from reports to charts, forms to booklets. Pre-punched and perforated, they are for use on laser and inkjet printers and high-speed copiers. Security paper is available to protect documents that the creator doesn't want copied.
The new Vector Computer Paper is made from highest quality base stock and is available in a variety of weights and sizes. It targets small businesses to large financial institutions. The new Vector Copier Tabs are easily collated for a wide variety of index tab applications.
All Vector papers are precision sheeted and have been widely tested on most major OEM printing equipment, including laser and inkjet printers, plain-paper fax machines, high-speed copiers, offset presses and direct imaging presses.
Vector was launched earlier this year with the following products:
Vector Coated Laser. This sheet targets mid- and high-volume production printers with copy and laser applications. The 90-bright sheets feature a blue-white shade and are available in gloss or dull finishes for color or black and white projects. Custom sizes are available in low order minimums.
Vector DI Coated Offset. This sheet features an 87-brightness and is available in gloss and matte finishes for vibrant four-color prints on equipment including Ryobi, Heidelberg and Kodak DI presses. The smooth surface and ink holdout deliver excellent print results at an economical price point. Custom sizes are also available in low order minimums.
Vector Multi-Purpose Paper. Now with 92-brightness, this sheet is designed for excellent performance on laser and inkjet printers, high-speed copiers and plain-paper faxes. With affordable pricing and ready availability in standard sizes, this 20-lb. sheet is well suited for everyday document production.
In addition to a full line of mill-branded papers and Vector, xpedx also has other private label brands including Venture(TM) a 92-bright multipurpose paper converted exclusively for xpedx by a minority owned business enterprise (MBE). Venture papers can be purchased with MWBE-targeted funds and are available in four standard sizes.
